How is it nearly February already? My birthday is less than a week away, and it feels like we just finished Christmas. I drove past a house with a tree still in the window *last week* - which, okay, may be more random than indicative of anything, but STILL. Can we slow down a bit please?

I bought a DVD of the best of Riverdance which arrived on Friday night, so I may have spent more of my weekend than is entirely reasonable watching that. I've seen the show live twice (and am just waiting for ticket sales to open so I can buy a ticket for when it comes back at the end of the year) and watched it twice when I've happened to catch it on TV, but in my opinion, there's no such thing as too much Irish dancing in a girl's life.

Though even the cat has abandoned me, so I may be in a minority there.

I've also discovered that it makes very good background music for quilting - the first two lines of my wedding quilt for my best friend are done! It has seven lines of 5 blocks, and I haven't even started the rest of the blocks, but that's not too bad. It's a jigsaw puzzle pattern, so it's not complicated, just fiddly to make sure everything lines up. Gonna be beautiful though, and when it's done, I get to tick something off my list.

On the subject of my 2014 to do list, I've also submitted three stories this year and sold two, and am working on number 4 - injured soldier waiting for his boyfriend to come home hurt comfort, I feel like maybe I wrote this already?! - and I've signed up to volunteer with an organisation that finds people to walk dogs for people who can't anymore. Assuming we get on, I'm going to be walking a Westie once a week - very excited!

How's everyone else's 2014 going?
